Six Impossible Things and When’s Breakfast?

“There’s no use trying,” she said: “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Through the Looking-Glass
Lewis Carroll

As I’ve mentioned, I”m between shows.

I’m working to deliberately spend more time thinking and planning and less time scrambling. In doing so, I’ve realized there are three things I need more of. Note that these are not just three things I want more of.

I need to spend more time outside. I work with the park system. This should not be a challenge.

I need more music. I need to sing more. My church no longer has singable music on Sunday mornings, so we’ve looked elsewhere. We’re not resettled yet. But, I also need to be playing more music, even if I did cancel my Apple Music subscription and lose my downloaded files. I do know that, if I open it up again, I’ll get those files back.

I need more art. I need more time to create.

That’s not six things, nor are they impossible. I just need to make them a priority.

It goes without saying that I need to be writing more.

Even though I just said it.

That’s not six things. They’re also not impossible things.

No one is in charge of helping me get these things but me.

I’m working on them.

As I wrote yesterday, rather than moving the blog, I’m transitioning back to try to be here on a daily, or at least more regular, basis.

I’ve also transitioned from being in rehearsals or performances for most of the last eight or nine months, to a two-month break before I conduct auditions for my next project.

And yesterday, I moved offices in the day job. Not changing jobs, just moving to a new, bigger office, with an incredible view. I had that view for a while until, well, let’s not rehash that story.

So, here we are at summer. I plan to make the most of it.

I’ve got a season pass to the amusement park and plan to use it as often as I can. This weekend I’m looking forward to parking myself in the water park for a few hours.

Note to self: Transition to the store to buy sunscreen.

All that being said, it’s going to take me a while to get back to the regular level of brilliance you’ve come to expect from my posts.

Be patient.

We’ll get there.
